It might be :

 

"...

The proposed visitor is not a prisoner or a former prisoner in any jurisdiction. However, prisoner or former prisoner who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur.

The proposed visitor is not on parole or probation in any jurisdiction as a result of a felony conviction. However, a parolee or probationer who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur and written approval of the supervising field agent..."

This means she needs to get some forms submitted, and approval of some peoples.

If we make phone calls and mail, it might help get her approved faster.

I am not on probation nor do I have any charges against me. I am not a patient only a caregiver. They can test me forever I do not at this point have need of meds. My husband is telling me that his PO told him he could not have ANY contact with any persons that held a MMM license. We are waiting on word from his attorney, this would include me, his sister, parents, and all of you for the duration of his probation...5 years

Barbi that is in direct violation of the Law, they cannot discriminate for having a card. Yes I know it's Emmett County and they don't recognize the law but this leaves them wide open for a Federal civil suit!! A Federal judge would rule against this on them in a heartbeat. Ask them this question? What risk can a MMJ carded patient possibly be to their jail? No more of a risk than a lot of visitors there that are users with no card. Total BS!!! Maybe we should get a collection going to start a civil suit on them dirty rotten #$$%^&^% they are violating your constitutional rights big time!!!
